"Along the edge of this green lived a man. His name is not important, as no one ever used it. The villagers only ever called him the Apothecary."
"He preached against the Apothecary's use of the old ways, and the Apothecary's foul temper and greed made certain..."
"In order to harvest these things from the tree, the Apothecary would have had to cut it down. And this the parson would not allow."
"But then one day, the parson's daughters fell sick."
"You may have anything you like, if you would only save my daughters." ….."the Apothecary said, shutting his door on the parson, " there is nothing I can do to help you."
"That very night, both of the parson's daughters died."
This tale is allegorical because it has a moral. The moral is to always have faith in the thing you truly desire. The parson never had faith in his daughters getting cured, so he relied on someone else to save his daughters.
